The tiny hamlet of Quither is found on the edge of Dartmoor and there are gorgeous views from the private garden of this cosy little single-storey cottage, located at the bottom of a little lane (bumpy in places) with the Owners' house, a former mill, across the gravelled yard. The sheltered garden is lovely and guests can relax in tranquil surroundings. Inside, the open plan living-room has a recliner sofa, a compact kitchen and a dining-area; the bedroom is spacious with a super-king size double bed and there is also a shower-room. The village of Chillaton is a mile away, the beauty of Dartmoor is a short drive and nearby Tavistock boasts some excellent restaurants.
Tavistock is certainly worth a visit as its Pannier market has something different each weekday and is a treasure trove of local arts, crafts and practical bits and bobs. Not least the county market stalls on Fridays, where the home-made cakes and pies on sale are delicious. There is a popular little theatre and some interesting individual shops to browse. Just over half an hour in the car and you can be on the north coast, and there is of course wonderful walking and riding on the nearby moor. There are several National Trust houses in the area, Buckland Abbey, the former home of Sir Francis Drake, and Cothele in particular is a real favourite with its stunning gardens rolling down to the River Tamar.
